Skip Frye 8.5" Fin in Volan


A series of fins designed by one of the greatest surfboard craftsman of all time... need we say more? Straight forward, clean lines, and classic curves are the name of the game here.

Minimalistic in some ways, this fin is made to perform and excel in a supporting role for mid-lengths, thinner planing type boards, and gliders. If you want to follow in Skip’s footsteps and find that ultimate trim, minimize drag, increase your speed and let the board do the talking... then this is the fin for you.

(Also works great in a 2+1)

This Volan fin is fine tuned with a precision foil as well as proper flex. It is handmade in the True Ames factory and go through the strictest quality control. Fins made with Volan fiberglass and properly aligned for optimal weave orientation have very high performance flex characteristics — with the flex coming more from the body of the fin rather than just at the tip.
